Police: Man kills wife, goes to college town, kills son

Posted: Updated:

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a man killed his wife at their Maryland home and then drove to the Washington suburbs, where he killed his 19-year-old son and himself.

The Harford County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that deputies checking on residents of a Bel Air home on Wednesday night found 48-year-old Zarqa Siddique fatally shot. Officials say her husband, 57-year-old Nasir Siddique, was identified as the suspect, but wasn't home.

Meanwhile, Prince George's County police say officers called to a parking lot near the University of Maryland campus found Nasir Siddique and his 19-year-old son, Farhad, fatally shot in the father's vehicle. Police say Nasir Siddique killed his wife, then drove to College Park where he killed Farhad and himself.

Siddique served as a member of the Maryland Governor's Commission on Military Monuments, Gov. Larry Hogan's office confirmed. He was appointed in 2012 during the previous administration. He was not slated to be reappointed due to a poor attendance record at meetings, the governor's office said. New appointments to the commission are scheduled to take place within the next several weeks.

"This is an unspeakable tragedy and the governor's prayers are with the family of the victims of this horrific crime," said Shareese Churchill, a spokeswoman for Hogan.

University spokeswoman Crystal Brown says Farhad Siddique was a junior at the school.
